    Jennifer Beynon                                                             

    The 2021-22 school year marks the start of my 27th year of teaching. I started my career in Chicago and then moved to Georgia 23 years ago. I have taught in Cobb County, Fulton County, and then many years ago found my favorite place to work and live in Forsyth County. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught every grade level between kindergarten and 8th grade. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech/Language Pathology, and then I became a certified special education teacher. Since working in Forsyth County, I have completed a master’s degree in Educational Leadership & Technology and a specialist’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I love being part of the Mashburn Family!
